I think different organisations have different sized cages. The cage they used in Cage Rage was significantly smaller than the one they use in the UFC.

But i've never heard of them changing the size of their cage for a championship bout. Maybe they do in organisations that still use rings, but i'd doubt that.

NAC 467.7952 Requirements for ring or fenced area; use of video screens. (NRS 467.030)

1. Mixed martial arts contests and exhibitions may be held in a ring or in a fenced area.

2. A ring used for a contest or exhibition of mixed martial arts must meet the following requirements:

(a) The ring must be no smaller than 20 feet square and no larger than 32 feet square within the ropes.

(b) The ring floor must extend at least 18 inches beyond the ropes. The ring floor must be padded with ensolite or another similar closed-cell foam, with at least a 1-inch layer of foam padding. Padding must extend beyond the ring ropes and over the edge of the platform, with a top covering of canvas, duck or similar material tightly stretched and laced to the ring platform. Material that tends to gather in lumps or ridges must not be used.

(c) The ring platform must not be more than 4 feet above the floor of the building and must have suitable steps for the use of the unarmed combatants.

(d) Ring posts must be made of metal, not more than 3 inches in diameter, extending from the floor of the building to a minimum height of 58 inches above the ring floor, and must be properly padded in a manner approved by the Commission.

3. A fenced area used in a contest or exhibition of mixed martial arts must meet the following requirements:

(c) The platform of the fenced area must not be more than 4 feet above the floor of the building and must have suitable steps for the use of the unarmed combatants.

(d) Fence posts must be made of metal, not more than 6 inches in diameter, extending from the floor of the building to between 5 and 7 feet above the floor of the fenced area, and must be properly padded in a manner approved by the Commission.
